The ‘24 Murano lineup consists of four well-equipped trim levels: SV, Midnight Edition, SL, and Platinum. The lone powertrain is a 3.5-liter V6 engine paired with an Xtronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) that generates up to 260 hp and 240 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s efficient as well, achieving an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. Front-wheel drive (FWD) is the standard drivetrain, but Nissan’s Intelligent all-wheel drive (AWD) is available across all trims.
Every ‘24 Murano cabin is anchored by a dual screen setup that includes an 8-inch NissanConnect color touchscreen for audio and infotainment features, and a 7-inch advanced drive-assist display for safety tech. The SV has heated front seats, a 10-way power driver’s seat, a 4-way power front-passenger’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, two USB-A ports and two USB-C ports, and an auxiliary audio input jack. The exterior distinguishes itself with 18-inch machine-finished alloy wheels, black roof rails, LED lighting (headlights/daytime running lights/fog lights), heated and power-adjustable side mirrors, rear privacy glass, remote engine start with intelligent climate control, Nissan intelligent key with push-button ignition, and rear door alert.
The Midnight Edition is a delightfully dark appearance treatment that has graphite leatherette seats, illuminated kickplates, trim-specific interior and exterior badging, 20-inch black alloy wheels, and the following blacked-out design elements: front grille, outside mirrors, front/rear lower bumper accents, and side body molding. The SV has leather-appointed seating, a heated steering wheel, heated rear outboard seats, position memory settings for the driver’s seat and outside mirrors, adjustable ambient LED interior lighting, a dual-panel panoramic moonroof, and a motion-activated liftgate. The Platinum switches up its look with silver roof rails and 20-inch dark silver wheels, along with interior features like semi-aniline leather-appointed seating with diamond-quilted inserts, climate-controlled front seats (heated and cooled), a power-tilt/telescoping steering column, and position memory for the steering wheel.
Occupants are well protected on all trims—even the entry-level SV—thanks to the Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite and technologies such as a 7-inch advanced drive-assist display, a front and rear sonar system, intelligent forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear cross-traffic alert, rear automatic braking, intelligent lane intervention, blind-spot warning, intelligent cruise control, and high-beam assist. The SL gets the most safety features, adding traffic sign recognition and trading the standard rearview camera for an Intelligent Around View Monitor.
Nearly all infotainment and connectivity features are controlled via a standard 8-inch NissanConnect color display with multi-touch control. The SV has Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Siri Eyes Free, Bluetooth, voice recognition, a hands-free text messaging assistant, and a radio data system. The SL swaps out the standard 6-speaker stereo system for a Bose premium audio system with 11 speakers and a subwoofer, along with the following features: a HomeLink universal transceiver, Nissan Door to Door Navigation with premium traffic, and SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link with 3-month trial access. The Platinum comes with access to the MyNissan smartphone app with NissanConnect services powered by SiriusXM, which includes a trial subscription.
